If your big sister is going to come and visit for a month, what to do with her but read books? (And play games--but more on that another day.)
So far, in addition to assorted picture books, Ruth has read Isaac and Eleanor James and the Giant Peach and A Long Way from Chicago. Today they started the first Artemis Fowl book. She also read Eleanor the surprisingly delightful Stuart's Cape.
She has captured imaginations: this is David's whiteboard at work, his notes for an upcoming article decorated with pictures of James and the lovable insects from James and the Giant Peach.
